Default Removing a broken template from VS New Project Dialog?


Hi gang,

I have an issue when I launch a VS template where VS reports the template is broken.

The template was from a third party app. Lets call it App Ver 1.
When I upgraded the App to Ver 2. The template in VS did not upgrade.

I assumed the problem was that the original template was not being uninstalled.

Following this logic I uninstalled Ver 2 then uninstalled Ver 1.
No more third party apps period.

VS however hung on to the original template and indeed I could still start a new project with it.

Not knowing what else to do I located all folders containing instances of the template zip and deleted them.

VS still shows the template but now the icon is generic and I get an error when attempting to launch a project from the template.

Skipping App Ver 1, I reinstalled App Ver 2. VS still has the above issue.
How can I remove the corrupted template item from the VS new project dialog?

I did not see anything likely when I searched the Windows Registry.
